Organization: BSI
Publication Date: 1 January 2013
Status: active
Page Count: 20
ICS Code (Floor coverings): 97.150
scope:

This standard describes a method for determining the acoustic properties of resilient floor coverings with regard to the level of impact noise emitted in the room where they are laid.

This standard specifies only physical laboratory measurement procedures using an artificial source (tapping machine). It is not intended to provide a subjective evaluation of results.

It applies to any resilient floor covering material, simple or composite, set up in accordance with its intended use on a floor and subject to direct walking impact. The various layers and underlayers of composite structures may be produced beforehand or be prepared on the spot.

The results obtained according to this method can be used to classify and compare the structural components according to their acoustic properties and to evaluate their behaviour in use.
